Jacqueline filliponeVarious events and fundraisers taking place this week have kept things busy across the North Shore. First up, friends, family and colleagues of North Vancouverites Pat and Sam Sullivan packed Seymour’s Pub on April 4 for the third annual Team Finn Wine Festival. The Sullivan’s three-year-old son Finn passed away in 2008 from a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma. Since then, the North Shore community has rallied around the family, helping them raise $1.2 million for the BC Cancer Foundation and BC Children’s Hospital. Next, it was time to reopen a classic as North Vancouver’s Filippone family celebrated the re-opening of the legendary Penthouse lounge and club. And last, but not least, two Mulgrave students hit the books for a very good Canucks cause. Also big thank you to Maria for her contributions this week.
